Funky, fun patio dining - the cuban sandwich is incredible, as were the pulled pork and the fried chicken salad. Wish I'd gotten the waitress' name - she was terrific. The place has a great vibe, fair prices, and wonderful food in an outdoor setting. What could be better?

This was a fabulous place to eat breakfast! Wonderful outdoor seating with flowers and plants. Our server was super sweet and cheerful and took great care of us. I had an omelet with beans and swiss cheese in it which sounds yucky but was yummy and a side of chorizo which I always love. My hubby had a different omelet... More

We had late lunch in between kayak and boat tours. Carlo's shrimp has a fantastic flavor that comes from the sauce from cooking the shrimp. It is light but high in flavor. Try the sangria as well.

Really good, correction GREAT Cuban Sandwich, other items on the menu looked good as they were being brought out of the kitchen. We had never been to Chokoloskee ad took a ride.

We had lunch midweek. All three of us enjoyed our food and the outdoor seating was nice too. Our only complaint was the service was really slow. Not sure if that is an ongoing issue or just a one time thing,

Enjoyed a great breakfast sandwich here, a bacon & egg on Cuban bread. It was huge and kept me going till well past noon. The waitress appeared little gruff but was a sweetheart. I spoke at length with a gentleman who might have been the owner. He told me of the history of the eatery and the town. Very interesting.... More

Recommended to us by Donny from Down South Airboat Tours. The food was great and their fries are made there. Black beans and rice a staple here. Many items to choose from. Extremely nice people. Even met the cook!

Specials are delicious. Beer and wine only, but a good selection and reasonable prices. Spices are done just right. Staff is good and sassy. Adequate parking. Seating outside is eclectic and charming.
